started right here on the banks of the detroit river in detroit, michigan, and yes, that is a giant nasty pile of something called pet coke. back in may "the new york times" highlighted what they described as a black mound of canadian oil waste rising over detroit. that oil waste is something called petroleum coke, a high sulfur, high carbon waste by-product of canadian oil sands. the pet coke that residents started spotting was put there by a company that owned it, a company call koch carbon, owned by the koch brothers. they started piling up all of this pet coke on banks of the detroit river before preparing to ship it off to other countries to be used as fuel. in addition to be a hideous eye sore, the pile also posed a potential health risk. we've got some video shot last month. look at this. look at that along the banks of the detroit river showing the black dust from the pet coke pile being kicked up in a storm that hit the area and just spreading everywhere. that black dust started blowing into nearby homes in detroit coming right through the windows. one local resident telling the

detroit is holding an important election tomorrow for the top leadership of that great american city. is that true or is that false? that is false. the city of detroit is holding an election tomorrow but it is pointless because there is no democracy in detroit anymore. the guy on the left of your screen here is dave bing who is the mayor of detroit elected by the people in 2009. he's not running again for the position and i think i know why. the guy on the right is kevin ohr, detroit's emergency manager, he was never elected to his position, he was put in place by michigan's governor. he makes 75% more than the governor makes. whatever he wants, detroit does because he is the emergency manager not the elected leader and emergency managers get to run that city now, not the people who get elected. so tomorrow we'll go through the motions, more than a than a doz will be running in a primary to become detroit's next powerless figurehead mayor who can't do anything. the top two finishers regardless of party will move on to the general election in november and that will give the peopl

and st. louis, detroit and flint, michigan, at restaurants like kfc and taco bell. they went on strike today at a mcdonald's outside milwaukee in the western suburbs. saying mcdonald's can well afford to pay them more. this nationwide strike comes with funding from one of the biggest unions in the country. the sciu. in milwaukee, an sciu member says she sees the movement growing. "more and more workers are beginning to realize they have a voice." what those fast food workers do not have is a union. they to not have a union job. they have mcjobs and mcwages and mcbenefits. they do not belong to unions and it's not at all clear they stand any real chance at forming unions at the local burger king. the history of improving lives of workers in this country is the history of unions. organized labor created the weekend as we know it. unions fought for laws against child labor in this country and back when no one had health insurance or maternity leave, unions negotiated for those benefits and benefits became the standard for everyone. union membership in this country has been falling
